People have been asking, "What time is it?" for thousands of years. Knowing the time helps us be where we are supposed to be, whether it's at school, at a piano lesson, or at soccer practice. This informational book looks at clocks that were used to tell time long ago, as well as clocks used today. Students will read about shadow clocks, sundials, and candle clocks. Students will even learn about water clocks and find out how to make one! Photographs and illustrations support the text.
